    Every morning when I open up my MacBook Pro, there are smudges on the screen. The night before, I did not touch the screen. I didn't touch it all day. Where are these smudges coming from? Does the screen touch the keys and the smudges are from the finger prints from the keys? That's all I can think of. No wonder Apple includes the little black cleaning cloth with the lap top.

    Well, that seems like a design flaw.

    Mine doesn't do that but some people claim their does. Are those smudges in the shape of a keyboard?

    No, they don't have any distinguishing shapes, just roundish smudges.

    I keep a sheet of blank printer paper to place on the keyboard before I close the lid.
    Takes care of "finger oil" transfer, at least in my experience.
